Quinn Bachand performs at Herman’s Jazz Club.

Two of Victoria’s hottest jazz musicians, Richard Moody and Quinn Bachand, are teaming up to recreate the magic of Django Reinhardt and Stephane Grappelli for an epic night of Gypsy Jazz music.

It’s all happening at Hermann’s Jazz Club tonight (Feb. 1) starting at 8 p.m. Joining Moody and Bachand are Joey Smith on bass and Reuben Wier on rhythm guitar and vocals.

A veteran of the Canadian music scene and considered by some an underground legend, violinist Moody has delved into almost every style a string player can try.  Still in his teens he moved to Montreal and joined the gypsy jazz group Swing Dynamique.

Several years later, after a classical music education at the University of Manitoba and the Conservatoire Nationale de Musique in Caen, France, he co-founded the acclaimed folk rock group Acoustically Inclined, garnering a huge national following.

Inspired by The Hot Club of France, at age 11 Bachand formed The Djazzkids, a Gypsy Jazz trio. At the same time he teamed up with sister Qristina to form a critically acclaimed Celtic duo, garnering several award nominations. Tickets for this all ages show are $10 or $12 at the door. For more information call Marie at 250-472-0999 or email marie@abachand.ca.
